Luminaire Control Module (LCM)
Key Features & Benefits
- Adjusting light levels to respond to variable lighting requirements
- Customizing lighting scenes for tailored experiences/tasks
- Scheduling the operation of a luminaire to lower energy use during off-peak occupancy
The Luminaire Control Module (LCM) is a key component of the ENCELIUM EXTEND Networked Light Management System (LMS). This device provides an interface between ballasts and the GreenBus II communication network. The LCM is automatically addressed as soon as it is connected to an ENCELIUM EXTEND Manager. Individually addressable, the LCM enables each ballast to be independently controlled and configured to best meet the needs of the facility.
The LCM switches a fixture ON or OFF via a relay contained in the module as well as delivers a low voltage dimming signal to any 0-10V dimming ballast/driver. LCMs can be connected to power relays or switch packs in order to switch larger electrical loads. An LCM can also be connected to LED drivers without isolation between the dimming section and the electrical output for added flexibility in LED driver options.
OSRAM offers a special Damp-Rated LCM for installations in interior locations subject to moderate degrees of moisture.
